Book Review - Best of Bridge Slow Cooker Cookbook: 200 Delicious Recipes

Last weekend I made a Fragrant Chicken Curry from the Best of Bridge Slow Cooker Cookbook. Teena thought it was delicious. I made it again last night for my son Ken, and his girlfriend Jasmine. They really enjoyed it. I'm not a big curry fan but thought it was okay.

Sally Vaughan-Johnston and Best of Bridge -- the winning team that brought you "Bravo " and "Fan Fare " -- are back with this collection of brand-new recipes created specifically for the slow cooker. This truly is a winning combination: the convenience of a slow cooker combined with absolutely sure-to-please Bridge recipes.

There are loads of recipes that will help you deal with the madness of meal preparation quickly and easily, with ingredients that can be found at any local supermarket across North America. This collection of recipes features everything from the perfect choice for your next neighborhood potluck, to elegant appetizers, breakfast and brunch ideas to delectable desserts. There's even a special chapter devoted to classic Bridge recipes that have been updated for today's tastes and slow cookers.

This wide range of Bridge recipes are sure to satisfy and delight everyone and they're categorized into the following tantalizing chapters: All-Day Breakfast Nibbles, Dips and Drinks Soups Beef and Veal Pork and Lamb Chicken and Turkey Meatless Mains Sides and Accompaniments Desserts.

The Best of Bridge motto remains the same: "Simple recipes with gourmet results." The recipes work and the one-liners will keep you smiling in the kitchen.
As I have scoured the book from end to end and made a few recipes from it, I can now comment.

The is a diverse collection of recipes in here to suite every taste. None of them are very difficult and most use everyday items you can shop for from your local grocery. I think this is a plus as I hate finding wonderful sounding recipes with unique, expensive ingredients which are hard to find.

I have 6 or 7 recipes marked for the future. In fact I promised Teena to make a Beef Goulash from the book on Sunday.

It's a great recipe book for anyone with a slow cooker. (Crock Pot)
